Dennis Harvesting

Dennis has been harvesting from his own garden and from the semi commercial garden. When these pictures were taken he and Linda were up to their elbows in beans and peaches.

Some of the peaches were bottled and some were being dried. Linda said their grand children liked the dried the best. She said her family liked to take the dried peaches to snack on when they were hiking etc.

Dennis was trimming the green beans to prepare them for bottling. There was a large pile of beans on their counter and he said he had two more large bags still in the fridge.

When Dennis and Linda harvest their sweet corn, they roast it, cool it, trim it off the cobs and freeze it. Linda said it is never touched by water. Dennis said it has a nice smoky flavor.

When bottling their carrots, they add a hot pepper, onions and garlic to the bottle as well. It gives the carrots more flavor and zing. When bottling the jalapenos, they add onions, garlic and a few carrots to sweeten them. Dennis also makes a sweet pickle relish.
